Balalaika made in rustic authentic style

The first mention in written documents of this symbol of Russian folk music, the balalaika, dates back to the early 17th century. And it acquired its modern look at the end of the 18th century, when the composer and organizer of the first orchestra of Russian folk instruments V. Andreev began to improve it.
The balalaika family consists of eight instruments, of which the tenor and descant are obsolete and no longer used, and Piccolo is extremely rare. The modern orchestra includes: balalaika prima, second, viola, bass and double bass.
Regardless of the height of sound, all kinds of balalaika are very similar to each other, and externally differ only in size. Triangular, slightly curved body of the instrument is made of maple or beech glued together boards "rivets", the number of which varies from six to eight. For the manufacture of flat top decks take wood resonance spruce, fir, cedar. The neck is relatively short, with mortise frets, the length of the menzura ranges from 435mm in the balalaika prima to 1180 in the balalaika double bass.
The traditional instrument has three strings, but at least there are four-string balalaika, and there are six-string (three pairs of double strings) models. Strings are used both metal and synthetic materials: carbon, nylon.
On the balalaika prima, most often, play with your fingers, to play instruments of large sizes usually use a mediator.
